Department of Music Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement: The UW Department of Music strives to expand students’ knowledge and experience by
offering diversity of content in all aspects of musical life, through teaching and
performances, seeking to add range and depth to the existing canon of great music,
in all its forms. Learn More.
Small enough for personal attention, yet large enough to support musical activity
at the highest level, the UW Department of Music offers innovative and challenging
curricula that prepare graduates for 21st century opportunities. We welcome students
from diverse backgrounds and the array of musical interests they bring to our campus.
We encourage self-discovery and collaboration through classroom, studio, and performance
experiences where students gain tangible skills to forge their unique paths.
We resolve to extend our shared artistic community to enrich the lives of those we
encounter through passionate performance and transformative engagement. As artist/teachers,
we strive to model excellence in the creation, performance, scholarship, and pedagogy
of our art and instill the humanistic values and benefits of life-long music-making
in all students, regardless of major.
